Tom Brady's wife addressed the critics of what she said post-game.

Gisele Bundchen faced some (mostly ridiculous) criticism for what she told her young kids after the Super Bowl loss. Naturally, her children were upset that their dad's team lost. So, she comforted them.

“Sometimes you have to let other people win,’’ she said, per USA TODAY. "We have to share. Sharing is caring.’’

Her kids were in tears about the Eagles' win over the Patriots. Mom had to remind her kids that New England has won a bunch of Super Bowls, while Philadelphia never had before.

“Just this time. Daddy won five times. They never won before."

“Their whole life, they never won a Super Bowl. You have to let someone else win sometimes.’’

As with everything that surfaces on the internet these days, Bundchen's comments were criticized. Some people think she shouldn't be telling her kids that the Patriots "let" the Eagles win.

“The idea that Tom Brady or the Patriots ‘let’ the Eagles win the Super Bowl is ridiculous, of course, and Bündchen shouldn’t be peddling that to kids,” Fox News’ Karol Markovitz wrote. “It teaches them to expect that winning is something that other people will sometimes grant them, instead of something they earn on their own. It’s a lesson their father doesn’t demonstrate on the field at all.”

Gisele has since taken to Twitter to clarify her comments.

This wasn't necessary. Only someone looking for something to criticize would take issues with what Gisele told her crying 5-year-old daughter.
